Alvium 1800 CSI-2

Merging machine vision standard features and the advantages of embedded systems in CSI-2 cameras

The high-performance Alvium 1800 C MIPI CSI-2 camera series now offers access to Sony's high-performance image sensors, which are popular in the imaging industry, with outstanding image quality thanks to a resolution of up to 20 megapixels.

With the new GenIcam for CSI-2 functionality, the Alvium 1800 C cameras combine the advantages of embedded systems (small size, low weight and low power consumption) with the wide range of standard features for machine vision. As a result, the cameras now pave the way for an uncompromising transition from PC-based machine vision applications to embedded systems.

Alvium 1800 C is the perfect camera for those seeking to migrate from PC-based to embedded systems without trading off on image quality, speed and precision.

Advantages of embedded solutions

  • With our Alvium CSI-2 driver 3.0.0 for NVIDIA Jetson, users can also benefit from the machine learning and AI capabilities of NVIDIA Jetson systems.
  • The cameras can be controlled with Allied Vision's Vimba software development kit or any other third-party GenICam-compatible software.
  • Compared to a USB camera, CPU load can be reduced by up to 70% with a CSI-2 camera:

Benefit from embedded advantages through easy migration from USB to CSI-2

Our new firmware now enables direct GenICam access for MIPI CSI-2 cameras. This means that GenICam-based image processing applications can now be easily implemented with CSI-2 cameras. In addition, these cameras can now be used with our Vimba SDK and a variety of GenICam features.

GenIcam for CSI-2 access enables easy migration

Existing GenICam-based applications configured with a USB camera can now be migrated to CSI-2 cameras. All SFNC (Standard Features Naming Convention) features available with Alvium USB3 cameras can also be used with CSI-2 cameras thanks to GenICam for CSI access.
